WELCOME TO ALPACA EXPEDITIONS
icon-star “The Journey is the Destination”
In 2012 I began Alpaca Expeditions with the goal of showcasing my country’s beauty and history with impeccable service and knowledgeable guides. We are dedicated to the needs of our clients – focusing on each individual traveler and creating a personalized experience for them specifically. We have this same dedication to our team, giving all the “Green Machine,” as we lovingly call them, good wages, equipment and insurance. We want to make lives better in Peru – no matter if it’s a traveler with us for one week or a child in a local village that we can help with school supplies. We are committed to our community and hope that you can join us. We look forward to seeing you in Peru.
Raul Ccolque, Founder and Manager
Alpaca Expeditions is a leader in trekking tours to Machu Picchu. We are a fully licensed Inca Trail tour operator, but offer other amazing treks through the Andes. If you are looking for a more relaxed vacation, we provide the same level of service for our train and day tours as well. We offer different tours around Cusco region and can help arrange full Peruvian adventures for those with more time on your hands. Our country has so much to offer and we would love to give you a little taste of what makes this land so magical.

Alpaca Expeditions Wins Silver for Best Travel Agency in Cusco in 2013
On Saturday evening, October 12th, Alpaca Expeditions won the Silver Q’ente Prize for Best Travel Agency in Cusco in the Adventure Tourism Travel Agent category. Alpaca was one of three agencies chosen out of hundreds that entered this year. The Q’ente Prizes are extremely prestigious as they are chosen by the Regional Tourism Board of Cusco.
These awards are given to companies that are dedicated to corporate responsibility. They encourage companies to create amazing vistor experiences while giving back to the local communinity in the Cusco region. Raul Ccolque, the owner of Alpaca, created this company with those exact goals in mind. While Alpaca aims to create treasured memories for all our travellers, we are also focused on making life better for those employed by Alpaca – guides, porters, office staff. We provide our entire team with proper wages, equipment and healthcare. We understand we would not be where we are today if it was not for our amazing “Green Machine” and are committed to them 100%. We also help all the villages that we pass through on our many different treks. We bring an extra porter with us on alternative treks to help clean the path as these trails are not protected by the National Park and are often left in bad condition from other trekkers. We bring food and provide hot drinks to the families that live there.
Alpaca is a young company but we hope with each year we will learn how we can improve conditions for everyone in the Cusco region and are dedicated to making life better for all.
Alpaca Expeditions founder Raul Ccolque and Manager Ronaldo Ccolque accepted the award on behalf of the company. It was a great night for us and we hope with hard work we will be celebrating many more.
